Excellent company with very high quality seeds! High Mowing has an impressive, attractive catalog and offers free shipping with no or very low minimum. I am impressed with High Mowing as a company, as they were one of the founding signers of the Safe Seed Pledge. You can't go wrong with High Mowing Organic Seeds!

I just purchased 3 Orchids from Ken Ramsey @drdawg and his Tropical Plants & More. One was for me and two were gifts. This is my first so I'm a newbie at it. I just got the plants today and they were packed EXCEPTIONALLY well and the plants were beautiful! Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of two of them before they went out the door to the friend who has other Orchids and raved about these plants. From what I know the price is very reasonable and he has a beautiful selection. Very impressed! Thanks Ken!!!

Great company! I now buy from them every year. They always have unusual species, and do some breeding as well.
Every order has been filled promptly.
The website has great info.

Small seed company with interesting seeds, some quite rare.
Beautiful packaging, each packet has an associated paper with great info on how to sprout and grow the seeds.

By TBGDN on Oct 7, 2017 6:44 AM, concerning Adelman Peony Gardens:

I recently placed an order for three peonies at Adelmans on October 1, 2017. These are peonies I do not currently grow, so I wanted to increase my varieties to "just a few More" since I had been digging and replanting my current gardens in late September. Never did I think to get such fast & courteous service on any plant order from any company. My order was shipped on Wednesday 4th, and delivered on Friday, October 6th before 1:00 pm. The most surprising thing about my order was the premium size and quality of the roots I received! And the packaging and condition of the plants was excellent. I have posted pictures of them below to show their size & quality.

An added point: Kady Adelman sent me a personal email helping me with my order status. What more could a peony gardener ask for? I give them an "Excellent" rating. Knowing that I will order from them again!

Yahl Iris provide great plants and great service. Melissa is welcoming and responded to my questions promptly. My irises were posted two days after my order was placed and the tracking information was sent to me via facebook messenger. I received large healthy rhizomes which flowered in their first year. Thanks Melissa.

By TBGDN on Oct 4, 2017 5:05 PM, concerning Hollingsworth Peonies:

This was my first year and experience buying peonies from Hollingsworth. I gave them a "trial" order of three varieties around the 17th of September 2017. My order arrived on Thursday, September 28 by Priority Mail expertly packaged and in excellent condition. The roots were of quality size with 3 to 5 eyes each; and one was above average with 6 eyes! I am very satisfied (even pleased) with their products and service. One small detail that I missed: They did not email me with tracking information. Overall I rate them on a scale of 1 to 10 as a 9.9. A very good operation; Thanks Hollingsworth!

By Marilyn on Oct 1, 2017 10:19 PM, concerning Christmas Farms:

In 2007, I ordered their Christmas Classic wreath. In 2008, I decided to order the Fraser Winterberry wreath. In 2009, I ordered the Four Firs wreath. I loved all their wreaths, which have a sturdy and a well constructed backing. The three I got held up to the KY winter weather beautifully. I just spray water on them when they arrive and to keep them fresh, every few days, as I had mine delivered right before Thanksgiving and kept it up into the New Year. The wreaths are shipped and delivered in sturdy wreath boxes. I was very happy with the company and the fresh wreaths.

In 2010, I decided to place a (non-fresh greenery) wreath on our door, which I kept stored in the basement when not in use during the Thanksgiving - Christmas time, but after 6 years, I'm thinking about getting another fresh and beautiful wreath from Christmas Farms.

They have the best selection of wreaths with different prices and a couple of different sizes to pick from. They have a few fresh candle ring wreaths too. Don't wait too late to order, as the closer it gets to Thanksgiving and Christmas, the more out of stock their items become.

They're a family owned business, located on the south west side of MI, not too far from Lake Michigan. Free shipping on all orders.

I'm very happy I found them on the internet in 2007.

These pics are of the Christmas Classic wreath taken the day it arrived. The tiny spots you see on the door are water droplets. I'd sprayed water on the wreath right after it was delivered and hung up.

I never got around to taking pics of the Fraser Winterberry wreath or the Four Firs wreath, but they look just like the pics in the website.

By Steve812 on Sep 23, 2017 1:57 PM, concerning Annie's Annuals & Perennials:

I have ordered perennials via mail order almost every year for more than twenty-five years. With most suppliers I have had very mixed results. With only a few notable and outdated exceptions, either the cultivars were just wrong for my location and would not grow, regardless of how healthy the plants might have been when they arrived, or the cultivars were suitable, but far too many of the plants themselves were in bad shape when they arrived, or I could not order them at the one time of year best suited to planting them.

These problems have (almost all) disappeared since I found Annie's. They have a large selection of plants well suited to the Western United States, and their website is very good at helping one find plants that are cold hardy, drought resistant, deer and rabbit resistant, and so on. The plants (almost) always arrive in tip-top shape. And I can order for delivery during late monsoon season, which is early August.

I've been especially happy with their selection of fragrant pinks, which seem to persist in my garden, adding fragrance for great swathes of the calendar year. Their gaillardias, too, have become a mainstay of my summer borders. I've had less luck than I expected with their anchusas, and I cannot keep either their 'drought tolerant' St Johns wort or their cheiranthus alive through a hot summer, even if I were to stand over them all day with a watering hose. I'd love it if there were a few more agastaches and salvias to choose from. Still, there's a good selection of suitable plants, and my success rate - as compared to other sources - is high.

It is clear that Annie (or maybe Annie's copywriter) has great taste and seems to get a genuine and infectious thrill out of growing, propagating, and writing about plants. The whole experience begins to feel a bit like a guilty pleasure. Hard to do better than this.

By Lalambchop1 on Sep 22, 2017 5:26 PM, concerning Colonial Creek Farm:

I was very pleased to come across this company at a fall plant sale today. Their plants are GORGEOUS! Extremely healthy looking. The salespeople were very knowledgeable and their inventory was well priced. I looked at the website when I got home and found they have many more things. The plants are in small pots, but if you have the time to let them grow, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend.

By ycayasso on Sep 7, 2017 9:57 AM, concerning Oakes Daylilies:

I decided to place my very first daylily order with Oakes and was not disappointed. All the plants were healthy, with at least 3 to four fans on each plant. They also sent me a bonus plant, Little Grapette, which fit in very nicely. All of them had several nice blooms after planting, so I expect they will do even better next year after being more established.
